About Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch

Mr. Hatch leads a colourless, ordered life, until one Valentine's Day, he receives a candy-filled heart with the note "somebody loves you". Mr. Hatch’s world is turned upside down and he begins to make friends and enjoy all the fun parts of life that he once ignored. This heartwarming puppet play examines the effect that kindness can have on a dreary existence. Join Mr. Hatch as he searches for his secret admirer and enjoys the biggest surprise of his life!
